Description
a failed attempt at an rpm/fawm song from february. never could get it to sound like I wanted. finally gave up and switched to guitar for awhile. too much electronics was making me crazy. um, crazi-ER. lol ;) had to reset counter to zero like got too far out man, too much, too much... overindulgence at it's most egregious here.

written in the middle of the night after work, while in the shower, took and recorded idea immediately, tweaked a day or two, decided failure and into the bin. nothing much happening for me musically now so this is filler for a dead zone ;0

hopefully the future is bright! and we make best the schema ;)

Lyrics
building dreaming silent screening
fitting willing being seeming
living wing to fill your feeling
far beyond the world of dreaming

helpful scheme to bring the lean in
dealing with your pilot preening
failure to erupt in sealing
flying away beyond the ceiling

shooting up the day
making all the way
helping bridge the fray
leaping out the way

giving in to dream
waking up to seem
screaming out the scene
making best the scheme

You have something there. That distant vocal should be prominent, not the robotic one.
You could remix and make this even better. It's quite interesting and cool to me.

I have
like 6 mixes now finally got overwhelmed and shelved this and moved on. the deadline didn't motivate me this year it frustrated me. I feel I was doing a lot better last year. need to regroup

I agree this mix isn't it. sigh!! I hear it in my mind but can't get it.

actually put me to sleep more than once. I chopped the middle out on one mix but the segues were too rough. thought about adding a lead synth solo in that part but never did. but thank you ;)

Cool beans Eddie!
This has serious potential, if you can bring yourself to get back to it. All sorts of interesting vocal and musical sounds and the lyrics are cool, with a kind of hiphop rhyme scheme.

This is seriously out there ... I love the synth sounds and the trippy robot and yes your vox could be brought up more but I like this as is. I know how you feel when you spend so much time on a mix that you can't hear it anymore and when you post it you release it from your mind and the last thing you want to do is go back and remix ... time to move on and create something new!! I love it man ... great listen.
Cheers

exactly
got a ton of stuff to work on and no time. need to focus more but I am simply undisciplined. I have friends working on a few songs for 10 years and I have never heard them. guess what in 10 years I'll be sixty!! maybe one day I'll really spend some time and do one song really well.

Oddly compelling...
the robotic voice is almost hypnotic and the blend of sounds is mystical......so we have a futuristic fantasy piece in the making....me likey yeah it grows on you....now about these waterproof synthesisers ?

I agree with LL on the vocal production. I suspect that the robotic voice is fighting for eq space occupied by one of the other instruments. I like the stream of consciousness lyric. Has potential.

I tend to do that a lot. I hear how it's supposed to be in my brain but can't mix it right all the time !

Hiya Eddie
Sometimes it be like that. I have songs that have been unfinished for YEARS. Just can't force it. It kinda feels like you've talked yourself out of this so maybe it just wasn't the right time. Some good ideas on this though! Listen to that inner voice.

Tugging at the fringes
Really nice conceptual piece. I dig the groove, the mesmerizing, half awake / half asleep feel tugging at the nether regions between. Cool. Thanks for sharing from your dead zone!

all the feedback comments are correct imo -- it could have been mixed better but it was album writing month and I felt I had to move on. in the end it's just another song in a hundred years who's gonna care. I confess I like this version ok. thanks ;)
